Trattoria A Mano
Survey was incredibly attentive and very sweet
Another fabulous meal here! Food is tremendous, and the service is top-notch without being fussy.
First time here. Bronzino and sicilian cauliflower were excellent. The cauliflower side was actually one I'd make. Chicken marsala was a piece of boneless chicken with a wing bone attached - airline cut. Delicious! Canolis were good. Service, ambience tops. We will definitely return.
Nice restaurant. Citris salad was excellent, one entree was "overcooked".
My husband had the Orechette and loved it,likewise I had the bolognese and also loved it. The carpaccio appetizer was over the top delicious.
The sommelier (who was also our server) did a wonderful job of recommending both food and a very good bottle of Italian wine. She was attentive and fulfilled our every need. She also comped us with a third dessert when we couldn’t make up our mind about which two to choose.
We have already recommended this restaurant to friends who will be visiting Santa Fe in the next few weeks. Put this gem of a restaurant on your to do list when visiting Santa Fe.

Amazing food, amazing service. If you want real Italian food in Santa Fe, this is the only choice. Not only is the food incredible, it is consistently incredible. Wine offerings are top notch. Ari is the best. We came to A Mano when it first opened because Ari was our favorite server at another of SF’s top restaurants. She’s a top-notch professional with impeccable recommendations on food and wine.
The food was excellent. However the portions were a little thin. I had traditional spagbol which was excellent but very meagre
My partner had Fusilli Lobster which was both excellent and fulfilling !
The service was a tad slow whilst the restaurant did not seem totally full and busy
Overall excellent but try fill us up next time
Outstanding! Becoming a must-do favorite. The food is excellent and the service impeccable. There is a passion here to serve.
Food was good, service was poor
We requested a quiet table which they accommodated. Charming ambiance and lovely wait staff. Flavor combinations for starters were unusual and tasty. Beautiful color and textures. This is the place for homemade pastas. Our group had 3 different varieties which all had just the right texture and sauces. Fennel ice cream for dessert was fabulous. I’ll return soon.
They had free valet parking since the street is crowded. Very convenient.
We have had dinner here twice so far and each time has been better than the last, I can't wait to go back.
Food and service were great.
The food was exquisitely delicious. Service was beyond comparison. The chef was able to modify menu offerings to suit any dietary needs. A memorable dining experience, I make certain to dine whenever I am in area.
The food could have been served warmer and the selections more varied. Nothing remarkable.
Perfect experience thank you verymuch for the wonderful evening
We are locals and visit often. The food is always interesting and fresh. I think they have the best wait-staff in town.
Wow is this place awesome! The food fabulous and wine list superb, and the staff is tremendous. Ari, Clayton et al are warm, knowledgeable and witty. Been there 4 times now and each meal has been just delicious.
Service and food were excellent, as always! We make a point of visiting every time we are in town!
Our meal was even better than our previous, first, visit. Every dish was outstanding - creative, well prepared, and delicious in ways I hadn't imagined. The service was perfect, authentic and not over the top as it often is at higher end restaurants. Just enough, not too much and real. Thanks for a pleasurable and enjoyable evening. It also wasn't too noisy and this particular setting can veer in that direction, but it was perfectly moderate and pleasant. Maybe Thursday is a good night to come!
First time we’ve been there and we will be back! Wine and food was exceptional. Husband said best pasta he had eaten and my meal with the lobster was also very good! Lobster was from the claw and there was a lot of it and not cut to pieces!! Small place, but very quiet and comfortable!

We enjoyed our evening. Our waiter was very nice and helpful with wine suggestions. We will definitely be returning.
The food was not over-the-top spiced, but instead was more subtle and delicious. We shared dishes - Eggplant Parmigiana and the pasta Bolognese. The Bolognese sauce was very good. We will eat here again when in Santa Fe.
Always on the hunt for a new favorite in Santa Fe and this restaurant just moved to the top of the list. Great food and service with an interesting menu including unexpected dishes.

Dear Beverly, Wow! We are blown away by your review. It made our day here at Trattoria A Mano. Thank you for your lovely note. Trattoria A Mano Team
Dinner was perfect, wait staff top notch and the entire evening was lovely . Home made pasta, authentically prepared and delicious. Definitely get reservations and plan on a lovely dinner experience! The entire staff was very well trained and worked in fine unison together with excellent customer connection and service.
Dear Cheri, We’re really pleased you agree Trattoria Amano was perfect. Santa Fe has lots of lovely restaurants, but we think we’ve got something special here at Trattoria Amano. We always try to create a warm welcome for our Guest so we’re really grateful for your feedback. Looking forward to welcoming you back soon, Trattoria Amano Team
Oricchetti was doughy and too thick. Red sauce and fennel sausage was tasty.
For lobster fusilli the lobster was chewy and the fusilli ordinary.
Citrus salad was very fresh testing.
Eggplant Parmesan was tough. Should be velvety texture, melt in your mouth.
Thank you for your recent visit to Trattoria Amano. We are sorry to hear that your overall experience fell short of both your expectations, and ours. We have shared your feedback with our Chef Michael Leonard. If you would like to follow up directly please email me at audrey@nmfinediningcom. Thank you again and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to Trattoria Amano soon. Sincerely, Audrey Rodriguez General Manager NM Fine Dining
I loved the attentiveness of the wait staff and their flexibility in providing me with a satisfying meal (removing egg from top of fettuccine Alfredo). Craig our waiter, was so amiable and jovial. He was exceptional. The tiramisu was wonderful in this romantic
Restaurant. Excellent quality.
Food was excellent. Our server, Arie, was superb! Right balance of service and quiet time.
Hi Carol, Trattoria Amano endeavors to go above and beyond for our Guest, so for you to say your server was superb is a source of great pride! We have told Ari about your kind comments! We’re really grateful for your feedback and look forward to serving you again! Thanks again, Trattoria Amano Team
We love Trattoria. Would recommend it to everyone.
Perfect from the moment we entered. We had to wait no more than five minutes for our reservation slot but they brought us champagne while we waited! The excellent service continued from there...we are vegan and we were given many options for menu modifications in a very courteous way. The food was excellent! The wait staff was great, knowledgeable and very accommodating . The wine list was extensive. The restaurant itself is beautiful, romantic...we went there for our anniversary..we will definitely return!
We LOVE Trattoria A Mano. It's lovely to have top tier Italian cuisine. And the ambience is warm and romantic, all enhanced by restaurant staff with just the right touch.
Hi Polly, What great comments! We’re really pleased you enjoyed your time with us. Looking forward to your next visit, Trattoria Amano Team
Nice gem of a restaurant in a small intimate space. I liked being able to watch our food being prepared especially the makings of the house homemade pasta. The servers were excellent. The food had some highs and lows but I would definitely return for any visit.
Dear Mr. William, Thank you for your recent visit at Trattoria Amano. "Gem" is a treasured compliment of Trattoria A Mano. We would like the opportunity to investigate your feedback regarding our food having highs and lows. We are always working to improve and would welcome further feedback. We invite you to contact us at directly to share your comments. We look forward to serving you again soon. Thank you. Trattoria A Mano Team
Food was delicious as always. Constant debate as to whether or not to return to 'old favorites' on the menu or try something new. New on this last visit was the shrimp scampi appetizer (now a new favorite) and the pork belly - perfectly done.
One difference from previous experiences - this was the first time I've been in a fine dining restaurant and could enjoy Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" and other hard rock classics during dinner. Perhaps the management is trying to change the vibe of the place? I hope not.
Hi pfludzinski; Thank you for your recent visit at Trattoria Amano. Led Zeppelin's "Kasmir" and other hard rock classics sounds more the musical selection of our new concept Jimmy D's. Our apology if we caused concern. We think we’ve got something special here at Trattoria Amano and have no plans to change. The only changes in the future will be us striving to be the best Italian restaurant in Santa Fe. The Trattoria A Mano Team thanks you for bringing to our attention.
Although I knew that this restaurant was an up-scale restaurant or tried to be; I must say that for being an Italian restaurant, it really missed on the essence of Italian dining.
Dear Eduardo: Thank you for your recent visit at Trattoria Amano. We’re sorry to hear that your experience was not the essence of Italian dining you expected. We invite you to contact us directly so we may discuss your specific personal experience. Thank you.
They were either short handed or trying to cut corners with the floor staff. Two servers, a runner and the manager were handling the dining room. Too many tables for a staff that size.
Always good. Great food and staff.
Service was second to none. Our waitress not only knew the menu inside and out but was very enthusiastic about it. The food was delicious! Will definitely recommend it to others and will go back. Not too many great Italian restaurants in Santa Fe.
A Mano is on par with any of the finest restaurants in Santa Fe. Ari, our server was wonderful...the best! Our other server was also wonderful but I didn't get her name. My scallops and salad were fantastic. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed the total experience!
The best Italian restaurant in Santa Fe and one of the best restaurants in town period. Excellent food and service (ask for Clayton as your server, he's the best!!!). The menu changes and we have had nothing but wonderful food every time we have eaten here.
The cafe is dark, decor is conflicted. Adding photos to a former red sauce chianti bottle place is not enuf.
Food was very weak. It could have been a frozen container from Safeway. The calamari app was totally embarrassing. There was nothing there there!
Santa Fe needs a cool Mediterranean spot that serves creative and modern food. Sadly, this falls way short.
